Russian Federation asks US to destroy weapons banned by INF Treaty

Russian Federation has successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile armed with multiple warheads less than a week after President Donald Trump's administration announced that the United States would withdraw from a Cold War-era nuclear treaty with the country.

Russian Federation suspended the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty at the weekend after Washington announced it would withdraw in six months unless Russian Federation ends what it says are violations of the pact, allegations rejected by Moscow.

President Trump gave notice of withdrawal from the 1987 treaty abolishing intermediate-range ground-based nuclear missiles, known as INF.

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov charged that the USA refusal to negotiate an extension to the New Start treaty signals Washington's intention to let it expire in 2021.

"Amid new threats created by Washington we will definitely take comprehensive measures to provide our own security", the high-profile diplomat said. Undersecretary for Defense Policy John Rood also said Wednesday there were no plans for such a deployment. "However, if the United States revisits its destructive course and returns to commitment to the INF Treaty, Russia is open for a meaningful dialogue".

The Ministry of Defense (MOD) summoned the USA military attaché in Moscow on Wednesday to hand him the treaty-related memo. However, he said that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation would continue to work with Moscow in an effort to bring it into compliance.

Later on Thursday, though, Russia's Defense Ministry called on the U.S.to stick to the INF treaty and destroy the types of weapons that Russian Federation thinks violates it.

On February 2, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Moscow was also suspending the Treaty.

"Perhaps we can negotiate a different agreement, adding China and others, or perhaps we can't-in which case, we will outspend and out-innovate all others by far", Trump said during his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening. Russian Federation has successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile armed with multiple warheads, after the US withdrew from the INF Treaty.
